Jeunes Chercheur.e.s Queer (Queer Youth Researchers) is a participatory, community-based and capacity building program for 2S/LGBTIA+ youth (18-29 years old) interested in the field of research.

The program offers youth a unique opportunity to be involved in each step of a research project, allowing them to gain new research skills, to learn about 2S/LGBTQIA+ issues and to connect with other young people with similar interests. Program participants meet weekly to get hand-on experience with research and to work alongside experts on health inequities and 2S/LGBTQIA+ health.  

The Jeunes Chercheur.e.s Queer program is an opportunity to contribute to the advancement of research about 2S/LGBTQIA+ people and to learn about different participatory research methods.

Previous research experience is not required to participate in the program.  

The Jeunes Chercheur.e.s Queer are currently working on "I stand Out”, a survey investigating cannabis use, mental health and resilience among 2S/LGBTQIA+ youth in Canada.
